Interview: Buckshot & 9th Wonder

As a well-respected producer, the always musically adventurous 9th Wonder is never one to shy away from experimentation. In joining forces with scrappy rap vet Buckshot, the North Carolina-based music maker mashes up his trademark percussion-driven, soul sample-laden production with that street grit, Boot Camp Clik-styled flow. Being that this is their third full-length collaboration, the duo no doubt have the resulting boom-bap down pat. The Solution differs from 9th Wonder’s collaborative series with West coast rapper Murs (whose appropriately titled The Final Adventure was released on the same day), in that the 12-track project maintains a gully, old school feel to Murs’s breezier sensibilities. It’s a gritty, soulful sound that holds The Solutiontogether, seemingly aspiring to be nothing more than “Boot Camp meets Little Brother”: familiar and stress-free for an audience seeking a vintage feel in their hip-hop.
